16 September 2018, Sohal Tole, Jahada rural municipality, Nepal: Gobinda Mohali shows how he rides a bike packed with baskets to the town of Biratnagar, to sell them at the market there. Basket making is a traditional skill among the Mohali (Tarai Dalits, meaning Dalits living on the plainlands of eastern Nepal), but it is only recently that they have been able to access the market and start selling their goods, in the nearby town of Biratnagar, Province 1, Nepal. Access has been made possible through support from the Nepal Evangelical Lutheran Church. Sohal Tole is a community inhabited by Santal and Dalit (Musahar) people, who find themselves as the very margin of society in Nepal. The 54 households are supported by the Nepal Evangelical Lutheran Church, as they mobilize together on disaster preparedness, income generating activities, financial governance, and mobilization on sanitation, education and entrepreneurship. The community project also receives technical support from the Lutheran World Federation World Service programme.
